This recipe was written down by my mother in 1950. I have no idea why it was described as "Hindu", but it is totally delicious and is my childhood comfort food. I will be posting more of her recipes as the Summer passes.
- 2 large onions, chopped
- 1 cup butter
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 chopped garlic cloves
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 6 ounces water
- 1 (8 ounce) package spaghetti
- 4 tablespoons flour
- milk, as needed
- salt and pepper
- Fry the chopped onion in one stick of butter until golden.
- Add the ground beef, the chopped garlic salt and pepper.
- Brown sufficiently and then add the tomato paste and (use the can to measure) the water.
- Cook for 20 minutes.
- Make a white sauce.
- Melt the stick of butter and add the flour.
- When it has cooked add milk to make a medium sauce.
- Cook the spaghetti according to package directions.
- In a buttered casserole put 1/2 of the pasta, top with a layer of meat sauce, add the other part of the pasta and top with the balance of the meat sauce.
- Top with the white sauce and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until bubbly.
I haven't tried this recipe, but I just wanted to say that I found it interesting that your mother named it "Hindu" considering there is beef in it.. :) It looks like a simple tasty recipe though...
